To dress up a simple meal based around soup, I'll sometimes make these rolls. People really eat them up quickly and on the rare occasion you actually have some leftover, they are delicious the next morning with jam. The fact that the dough is made in the bread machine makes them easy to make and lessens the amount of hands-on time tremendously. So, if you have a bread machine, give these Virginia Light Rolls a whirl this week.
1. To make the cloverleaf shape pictured above, pinch off a small amount of dough; then shape each piece into approximately 1 inch balls. Lightly butter or apply cooking spray to a muffin tin. Place three balls in each cup.
2. I brush a little melted butter on top of each roll before placing them in the oven.
3. I cook them for only 8-11 minutes even though the recipe calls for 25 minutes. For some reason mine are perfectly golden in half the time. Keep in mind that every oven varies so make sure you keep an eye on yours so they don't over bake.
